Dear mama, do you still remember the day you heard your baby’s first cry?

The moment you first held the tiny baby and realized that you are capable of loving a tiny human so much.

Each day, you get to learn about sacrifice, love, and raising a kind and god-fearing child.

Being a mother is not easy.

But what if, one day, you realize that the boy that you love so much is capable of planning something sinister?

As they say, the first instinct of a mother is to protect her child. For Nichole Schubert, she did exactly that and more.

She saved many lives, along with the life and future of her son.

This interview happened a few days ago, and it’s about a story that happened last 2019. With all the recent shootings that had been happening, a mother decided to share her story.

She hopes this would help parents, teachers, and other guardians.

Schubert was cleaning her home and also her son’s room.

Then, she found a journal.

As a mother who monitors her child, she looked into the journal and almost fell to her knees when she saw what was inside.

She found a plan outlining how his son would kill her, then go to his school and start a killing spree.

Schubert’s son was only 17 years old when this happened.

“It was very descriptive,” Schubert shared in an interview with GMA. “It was just heartbreaking. I didn’t, I didn’t really want to know the details.”

Can you imagine seeing your child’s plan to kill you and then kill many others?

It hurts because you know how much love you’ve given your child, and how much you wanted this child to grow up properly.

“That’s my child, I, I gave birth to him, you know. It hurts a lot. It still hurts,” she said teary-eyed.

She was stunned by her discovery, but deep down, she knew what she had to do.

Schubert said she called the authorities and turned him in.

“Your first instinct is, as a parent, is to protect your child. But at that point, I felt like if he is actually going to do these things, he would be safer in jail,” Schubert recalled.

She knew his son would be better in jail. He was so young, maybe just confused.

“It wasn’t just about me and him at that point,” she explained. “It was about a whole school — hundreds of people, hundreds of kids, children.”

Of course, his son was furious at her.

Schubert said she stood by her decision that day. She didn’t regret reporting her son and getting him the help he needed.

She was a mother, and she wanted the best for her child, and for all the other people who could have been his victims.

According to Schubert, she believes she was able to save lives, including her own and her sons.

Aside from the journal she turned to the authorities, she also found what she believed was a homemade pipe bomb.

Even though her son claims that the pieces of evidence were all fantasies, it was just right that his mother turned him in.

Schubert’s son pleaded guilty to charges of a felony for threatening to bomb and misdemeanors for harassment.

Before being tasked with completing community service, he completed a rehabilitation program.

Schubert said she wants other parents to be aware of their kids because they are the only ones who could help them.

“Stay in their business. Even if they don’t like it. They’re not going to like it. But as parents, it’s our job to know what our kids are doing,” she reminded everyone.

Kids will need our guidance, and with all the stress and other outside contributors that we don’t know, someone can easily sway them to do some bad things.

“Just be aware and watch for signs. Kids will normally tell you by their actions when something is wrong,” Schubert said.
